A Wet Start to the Week

Current Conditions: Good afternoon everyone.  After a mostly sunny start to the day this morning, clouds have pushed in from the south ahead of our next weather system.  Currently a surface low is centered over eastern Texas with a stationary front stretching across the Gulf of Mexico.  The current timing puts the rain in our area around 8:00-9:00 P.M. tonight.  As the rain moves in, be sure to take it easy if you have to be out on the roadways.
